Out of a field of 44 entries, only five players remain in the latest PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker 2021 high-stakes contest. The all-time leader in terms of WCOOP titles Denis "aDrENalin710" Strebkov is aiming to extend his lead with an unprecedented tenth title in Event WCOOP-52-H: $10,300 8-Game High Roller and will return for the day with the largest stack.
As a matter of fact, out of the final five contenders, only Ari "BodogAri" Engel doesn't have a WCOOP title under his belt just yet.

On top of that, the five-time WCOOP champions Yuri "theNERDguy" Dzivielevski and Joao "Naza114" Vieira complete the line-up for the mixed game showdown.
